A campaign has dynamically been pushed in recent years in various sectors of the national economy to recycle scrap materials and domestic waste.

A campaign has dynamically been pushed in recent years in various sectors of the national economy to recycle scrap materials and domestic waste.

Practical measures have also been taken to conduct recycling under unified guidance.

Recently, the government took a measure to ensure industrial establishments would use the profits made from the recycling of waste and by-products for their management and technological development.

What is important here is to draw up a recycling development strategy properly so that the recovery and reproduction would form a close link.

To this end, steps are now being taken to set up standardized facilities in the workplaces, public places and residential quarters, collect and sort a large amount of scrap materials and domestic waste into kinds and reuse waste paper, plastic waste, waste rubber and others that are in abundance and that require less investment before anything else.

The introduction of science and technology into recycling is an important matter in pressing on with it on a long-term basis.

National priority projects related to recycling have been fixed realistically on an annual basis and industrial establishments are now eager to apply new technologies in line with their actual conditions.

It is also important to promote recycling in combination with the development of green economy on the principle of environmental protection and in a far-sighted way.

We are now faced with a task of grasping the actual situation and controlling the entire process properly to ensure all sectors and units establish a regular production system and conduct recycling as required by the relevant law.

We will organize and supervise the work for recycling more carefully to give a much-needed boost to the national economy.
